In any building process, whether it is a simple renovation or the construction of an entirely new building, a project manager is necessary. However, if you are using an architect, you can utilise their design expertise and also have them manage your project. Here’s what you need to know.
What is Project Management?
Project management is the process of coordinating and managing all aspects of the building process. This is generally undertaken by a project manager, who manages things such as giving advice on the building, sticking to the budget, ensuring that the building meets specifications and regulations, ensuring that the building is constructed to the timeline allocated for the project, coordinating all of the professionals that are involved with the building, ensuring that all of the client’s requirements are met, and managing contracts.
If you are using an architect in your building, they are more than capable of undertaking project management as well.
Benefits of Using Your Architect as a Project Manager
One benefit of having your architect as your project manager is that you will not incur extra costs for hiring a project manager as the architect will have already built this into his fee structure. The architect is also responsible for and intricately familiar with the design of the building, so they will become immediately aware if something is not going as it should and take steps to remedy the problem. This is especially advantageous as they are involved with the building right from the initial design stages through to completion and the client moving in. The architect will also have a better rapport with you, the client, so you can feel assured that they will keep you apprised of everything during the building process.
